Sorry you didn't too so well, I tried to help  Cheesy

It was a good show from the punter's perspective, but there were so many more traders (and with a bigger variety of stuff than I remember from previous years) that I guess any spending got diluted per trader...

...we actually had about 350 through the door and it was our biggest so far.

Thanks for the info, I was going on second-hand info from another trader to be honest!  That's a lot more than I thought though, what was last year's count for comparison?

Especially when we discovered that there was a large side door that made emptying the hall so much easier.

I noticed that as we were leaving, it would have made a big difference on the morning as well.  Was there another one of those further down the hall?

Last year was about 250 to 270 (I don't do the accounts). I can remember being pleased at that figure. It just goes to show how much bigger the hall was.
Perhaps the lack of a Bar reduced takings but I do know that some club members were only going to spend what they made at the B&B.

I have no idea about any other side entrances but as the hall is to be redeveloped it might be 2 years before we find out.

Anyway now we start the hunt for another hall.

Good luck with that, I hope you manage to find something suitable.  As I said above, the show really does have the potential there if it can find a permanent home.

 Cool

It may also be a bit too close to Carronade for some? I wasn't able to make either show unfortunately, but if I'd laid out a load at Carronade (My local one) I probably wouldn't have an awful lot of  pocket money saved up for Wappinshaw so my own spending would have been much less, maybe rounding off missed purchases.

I don't know how many travel to either show so I'm not sure on what the numbers affected might be.

Quick pic of the hall I grabbed early afternoon-ish:

Are all the pictures in that set from Wappinshaw? Because if they are I seem to have missed a second hall altogether... the second pic (with the curtained wall) seems to shows a room I never saw...

Does look a bit thin on the ground. Nice venue, though.

There were actually lots of people there, but there was a lot of space between tables, unlike previous venues!

The other pics are from Triples, I've just popped them all in the same set on Photobucket!
